by Larry Hartstein |

Patriots rookie running back James White "has opened eyes with how many quality reps he's getting and looks like he’ll be a significant part of the team’s attack -- on all three downs," reports It's the latest in an avalance of positive reports about White, who's expected to cut into the workloads of Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen.

'Motivated' Stevan Ridley looking for long-term deal
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Patriots and running back Stevan Ridley have yet to start talks on a new contract, reports

Ridley is getting a chance for a fresh start with LeGarrette Blount now in Pittsburgh, but he has to prove himself again after fumbling away the starting job in 2013. The report says if he plays well he could be in line for a long-term contract.

The report adds that "a motivated Ridley is a little lighter and faster this offseason and is focusing on fixing his fumbling woes."

Stevan Ridley aims to put fumbling problems behind him
by Larry Hartstein |

Patriots running back Stevan Ridley, who's lost six fumbles the past two seasons, said he's trying to put that problem in the past.

"All you can do is really squeeze it high and tight. I can’t really sit on it too much,” Ridley told "I think that was a lesson I had to go through, and hopefully I won’t have to go through it again. But who knows? You never know what’s in the plan or what God has in store for you, but a little adversity never hurts anybody. So for me, I have to go out there and be the player that I am. So in practice, I told one of the young guys today, that’s the quickest way to get off the field — you can ask me first — putting the ball on the ground."

How might the Patriots RBs shake out?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Stevan Ridley led all Patriots running backs in snaps played the last two seasons, but ESPN believes that nothing will be handed to him and he'll have to earn his keep this year. Additionally, ESPN thinks Ridley would not have led the backs in snaps had Shane Vereen stayed healthy for a full season. Vereen played nearly as many snaps as Ridley as it were. 

The belief from ESPN's Mike Reiss is that there will be a tandem situation "if everyone is healthy, with the numbers trending heavier toward Vereen."

Behind Ridley and Vereen are Brandon Bolden and rookie James White. Either one of them could earn decent playing time with a strong training camp and/or turnover issues from Ridley or Vereen.

Patriots select RB James White in Round 4
by Igor Mello |

With the 130th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected running back James White from Wisconsin.

White spent his first three seasons at Wisconsin behind Montee Ball. When he took over in 2013, he amassed for 1,444 yards on 221 carries with 13 touchdowns on the ground. He also posted 39 receptions for 300 yards and two scores in the passing game. He will likely battle for the third -string spot behind Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen.
